Truck loaded with hogs overturns just north of Bardwell

UPDATE: The site is cleared to normal traffic flow.

A portion of US 51 just north of Bardwell has been reduced to one lane due to a truck crash.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says a truck loaded with hogs has overturned about 3/4 of a mile north of the US 51/US 62 intersection.

The hogs are still on the truck.

One lane of traffic is open, but the road will need to be closed to remove the hogs and truck.

Drivers are asked to avoid this area if possible.

Cleanup is expected to take about four hours.
